SECRET SPOT to Margaret River

Enjoyed the gorgeous drive to Margaret River with some of the biggest trees I have ever seen. We would have liked to of stopped to do the Tree Tops walk but Ella had fallen asleep and we didn't want to wake her.

We did however stop at Dinosaur World which had a really impressive dinosaur skeleton display as well as reptiles and an amazing bird avairy collection. Watch the Cockatoo though, he seduces you by calling you "darling". You could also feed some pretty relaxed kangaroos.

Onwards we went through more gorgeous country side and passed many a winery. I have to say that the drive from Albany to Margaret River is absolutely stunning and we will be back to do the drive again (maybe without the child!).

We headed to a camp spot called Alexander Bridge but at $22 with no showers and possibly a whole lot of mozzies, we pressed on to Margaret River.

We made it into the town center around 3pm and headed straight for Prevelly Beach, famous surf spot in the area.
 Our veiw for the night

Stayed the night listening to the sound of waves crashing on the distant rocks in the ocean.

Had a nice warming cauliflower soup with bacon crispies and herb croutons for tea which I nearly sold a bowl to a hungry cold surfer :)
